Ep. 60: Islamic Holidays #8: The Battle of Badr

The Battle of Badr is the most important and decisive battle from the life of the Prophet (God bless him and give him peace). It occurred shortly after the Prophet migrated to Madina from Mecca and took place during the first Ramadan fasted by the early Muslim community. There has always been a special relationship between Ramadan and conquest throughout Islamic history. However, it is the conquest of the self that we ultimately seek.
